Exactly one year ago yesterday, I moved to San Francisco to start a new life. After having spent more than half a decade in San Diego working a job that taught me well but was just too cushy at times, the transition couldn’t have come sooner. Truth be told, I had been wanting to move for a good two years. After a few false starts and roadblocks, I was damn happy when I flew in to SF that weekend. My primary motivations were to move closer to my friends and to be in the middle of startup activity. Sharing an apartment and living within three blocks of long-time close friends, and joining TechCrunch made it two on two!
